Backed by over 15 years of experience, our domain professionals will assist you every step of the way with what can be a complicated process. The Sedo transfer team can shed light on the complex terminology and technical facets of domain management while providing individualized consultation ensuring your domain's relocation to a new provider or owner is hassle-free.


The applicant is charged a fee of 3% of the gross selling price, with a minimum fee of $60 for category 1 domains, and $200 for category 2 domains. (See price list) Upon request, we will also assist you in dividing the fee between the buyer and seller.

Also, please be aware that additional fees may be applied by your registrar or bank. There is an additional 3% express processing fee applied to payments over $500 made using Alipay, PayPal or via Credit Card.
